So you’ll probably want to go somewhere that you can drive and park at a high elevation. I think the road to Minaret Vista is probably the highest you’ll be able to drive, and it’s a scenic skin up the San Jaoquin Ridge from there. The ground is pretty sandy up there, so it won’t take much snow to make it skinnable. Though it could be a little wind scoured.
